Martha Stewart yesterday said she will surrender to authorities within weeks while continuing her appeal of a July conviction on charges related to insider trading of ImClone Systems stock.


Federal judge Miriam Goldman Cederbaum in Manhattan sentenced Stewart to five months in prison and another five months under house arrest.

"I must reclaim my good life," she said during a New York news conference.
